This was an emotional read for me at times, but it was so worth reading. I absolutely love Lucas and the sacrifice he made for the woman he loves. This book is not just about Tansy and Lucas though. We also learn about Mona and Kat and their lives. I recommend this book to anyone that enjoys a romance that's unlike any other. I received an advance reader copy of this book and this is my voluntary and honest review.

ARC for honest review with no compensation, WOW so different from the Texas Hero’s series but what a well written, emotional book by Jean Brashear and hard to put a label on it. Some might say it’s a romantic suspense, but it has so many facets that I can’t decide…. Lucas Walker has spent the last 20 years in prison to protect the love of his life, Tansy Gerard and to protect her at all costs. When he finally gets out of prison and wants to move on with his life away from the turmoil of what happened 20 years ago, he finds he can’t move on because Tansy has been left in the make believe world of what happened that awful day and nobody helped her to come to grips with what happened so she is left to be in both the real world and make believe at the same time. This story has many interlocking pieces, letter kept for 20 years, Tansy’s make believe world, her sisters and their problems, her father and his agent, Tansy’s kidnapping and the mystery behind the death of Tansy’s twin brother Paris. Will Lucas be able to help Tansy and bring her back into the real world and solve all these mysteries of what happened 20 years ago or will he finally turn his back and begin his own life now that he is a free man????

Did not know what to expect from this story. It is different from Jean's other books. This is more raw. At first it seems this is a story about Lucas and why he was in jail, but it is so much more. This is a story about a family, dysfunctional it may be. If I say any more I will give everything away. Mercy is a must read.

Lucas Walker soon will be a free man after spending twenty years in Attica for murder and rape. He survived his incarceration only due to the MERCY letter sent to him two decades ago by the late Juliette Gerard, mother of both the man he was convicted of killing and the woman he allegedly raped. When Lucas learns that the rape victim Tansy Gerard is marrying Carlton Sanford, expected to be named Ambassador to England, he concludes he must warn her that she must never wed the man who framed him to take the fall for the homicide of her twin and the rape of her.................. After being released, Lucas travels to New York City knowing he will not be welcomed by the Gerard family and risking making a prophet out of the guard who taunted him that he will be back. He secretly meets Tansy and tries to persuade her that he never harmed her or her sibling. Tansy wants to believe the man she loved, but the evidence is overwhelmingly contrary; besides which the manipulative Carlton sets in motion a scheme to return Lucas to prison with the key tossed away........................ This tense romantic suspense works because the cast seems genuine although most seemingly carry the weight of the world on their shoulders yet the amazement of MERCY is that Jean Brasher never allows the plot to turn into a soap opera. The story line is fast-paced as Lucas has two objectives: to save Tansy from the monster and to bring back the smile and élan to his beloved that he still remembers when they were teenage lovers.................................
